....This just irked me to no end.
Ok, here goes. DH has 5 older brothers and is the youngest at 44. One of his older brothers is in for a major convention in town and is staying with my MIL. So, MIL calls me last night and asked me to give BIL a wake up call at 7:00am. Ummmmmmmm, where's the alarm clock? "Well, he or I can't figure out how to use it, so make sure you don't forget."
After I picked up my jaw off the floor I reluctantly agreed and then voiced my irritation to DH who thinks I'm completely overracting and "it's a nice thing to do". Well, fine but I'm NOT doing it every morning for the entire 6 days he's here and have instructed DH to bring over our spare alarm clock for him to use. My thought is he is a grown man and if he can't figure out how to use his mothers alarm clock, GO BUY ANOTHER ONE. I am not your wake-up service. DH doesn't agree.
This "helplessness" runs in the family and DH was totally this way when I met him. I put a stop to that quick, fast and in a hurry.
Side note, this brother owes DH a rather large some of money and has yet to pay it back so that's contributing to my irritation.
So, am I overreacting?
